Packers tight end Jermichael Finley injured his right shoulder in the third quarter of Green Bay's game against the Colts, and his return was ruled as questionable.

Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley was injured in the third quarter of the Packers Week 5 game against the Colts. According to Jamey Eisenberg of CBSSports, it appeared Finley injured his right shoulder, trying to haul in what looked like a catchable ball from quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Finley's return is questionable. He had three catches for 11 yards on Sunday before leaving the field with the injury.

Finley is one of the most athletic tight ends in the NFL, but he's battled injuries throughout his career in Green Bay. He had one touchdown in the first month of the season, the Packers first score of the season against the 49ers.

The Packers are trying to get over .500 for the first time this season, leading the Colts 21-10 in the third quarter. Rodgers and the Packers offense have been relatively quiet against the Colts and the loss of Finley certainly won't aid things in the fourth quarter.
